Our story began in March of 2013. We both had been single for about two years prior to joining ChristianMingle. Neither of us had any luck dating the traditional way. I decided to give ChristianMingle a try, so I paid for one month. I didn’t have any luck in that month, so I moved on and closed my account. A month later I logged back on to check things out and saw an email from Ryan sitting in my inbox. I couldn’t read it because I didn’t have an active account. I thought he looked so cute in his picture, so I decided to give him a shot, and I paid for another month. We emailed back and forth for a short time, before we decided to meet for a coffee date. 

We met on April 13, 2012, which was actually a very rainy Friday the 13th. We went on eight dates following that, and it rained on all of them. We call it “the eight dates of rain.” We got engaged in October of 2013, and we are getting married this June. We just bought our first house and it is being built this winter.

My advice would be to hang in there. I didn’t think dating was as fun as it seems like it should be; that is until I met Ryan. That made it all worth it.

Ryan’s advice would be to meet early, be safe about it and, “say yes to the cute red-heads.”
